userId v uid

I added the entry

attribute	userID		uid	ces

to my slapd.at.conf file and I have the index entry

index	userID	pres,eq

in slapd.conf

I added some entries which have the userID attribute set and a search of the form

ldapsearch ... "(&(objectclass=posixaccount)(userid=myid))"

succeeds and displays the attributes for that entry. A seach of the form

ldapsearch ... "(&(objectclass=posixaccount)(uid=myid))"

gives no response. Shouldn't uid just be a synonym for userid?
